Duration: 20 sec.
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
|Police helicopter chasing sphere.
After a surf we were hosing off outside and we heard the H.B. police helicopter buzzing above us wildly. It usually just cruises around but this time it was in a cat and mouse game with an object that was about the size of a car. I have perfect vision and a rather extensive background in aviation.
We could make out all of the features of the copter but the object appeared to be like two clamshells together in a golden metallic color with possibly some blackish horizontal stripes. It was pulling off some fantastic manuevers that looked impossible! The chopper couldn't come close to it.
My hairs on my neck stood up and I felt that this is not of this world! It also had no lights and no sound. It was almost dusk outside.I yelled to my girlfriend to get the videocam but she was too late.
Also, there is an electric plant nearby and it flew around it twice before it shot off like a bullet with the copter in pursuit. I was a bit sceptical about this stuff until this happened, but now I know for sure something's going on here-if it was our govt., they wouldn't be testing something over houses!
